Throw it Against the IDEAS Wall

Last night we hosted our first Throw it Against the IDEAS Wall. We’ve been doing a lot of thinking around how do you create entry points for people to start new projects that deliver social impact and work to effectively solve a problem. This was experiment number one of the year.

We had around 100 students, alums, staff, community members and many others there. Some stayed for three hours discussing areas like energy and environment, healthcare and water. The energy buzzed! Our goal was to create an environment where people could talk around the futures worth building, the problems worth solving and the ideas worth creating.

We’re hoping those projects can carry forward as potential IDEAS Global Challenge entries, MIT $100k entries, and new ventures. This weekend we’re part of the team organizing t=0, a festival of entrepreneurship happening here at MIT (check out the line-up!). Throw it Against the IDEAS Wall was a kick-off event in its launch.

Tomorrow I’ll share more about what came out of last night’s work. In the meantime, here’s how we started:
